Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup white flour, preferably irish or pastry flour, plus more for dusting
  • 2 1/2 cup stone-ground whole wheat flour, preferably irish or irish-style
  • 1 3/4 cup room-temperature buttermilk, plus more as needed
  • Preparation

    Baking Directions:

    1.

    Preheat over to 375 degrees.

    Sift the white flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl and stir with a fork until they’re well combined.

    Rub the butter in with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.

    2.

    Form a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour the buttermilk into the well.

    Form your hand into a rigid claw and stir the buttermilk into the flour slowly but steadily in a spiral motion, starting in the middle and working outward.

    The dough should be soft but not too wet or sticky.

    (Add more buttermilk if necesary.)

    3.

    Turn the dough out onto a floured board.

    Flour your hands lightly, then shape the dough into a flat round about 2 inches high.

    Cut a deep cross in the top of the loaf with a wet or floured knife, then bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until nicely browned and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
